FedEx has announced that it has expanded its temperature controlled packaging (TCP) portfolio to include a new “cold shipping” packaging option for customers that require a refrigerated environment of 2-8° Celsius up to 96 hours for their shipments. The new packaging will be of particular benefit to the healthcare industry, as it is easy to use, reliable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly.
The patented system, built by NanoCool, achieves a temperature of 4°C in less than five minutes without the use of gel packs or dry ice. The packaging device maintains its exacting “cold ship” temperature requirements with a special cooling system that evaporates water over time, a process that is activated by merely pushing the button inside the box.
